That is because caffeine and hot fluids can work as an irritant or stimulant.

Yeah except coffee gives me the đź’©

Don, you should try to get more loads to Connecticut. That's the Constipation State so coffee is less of a problem.

Try caffeine pills.

It is only caffeine without all the additives. Caffeine is bad enough but the additives are what I feel get you with the energy drinks.

If you're going to do energy drinks try the no sugar ones. And set yourself a hard limit. Never take more than one a day, period. Dont let it become an addiction, if you have troubles with self control better to not start.

That’s about like smoking with a filtered cigarette because it’s safer.rofl-3.gif

I don't have any problems saying no to energy drinks, its not exactly the same as nicotine my friend. Of course I also understand people have different levels of willpower and self control. Its important that we understand our own bodies and make decisions based on that understanding.

Pacemakers, heart arrhythmia and palpitations, blackouts. Obviously it’s much safer? Your reasoning is laughable. It’s Russian roulette with a hand grenade.

The people that have those problems don't stop at one. So they have the same problem as someone who doesnt stop at one beer.

Okay Matthew, let’s break it down to the simplest terms for you to get my point. Try to keep up by reading what I have typed. Go back and re-read it several times if needed. Okay, here we go: Energy drinks are bad for the human body. Proven medical fact. Don’t do something bad to your body by using them. One a day, one every hour, or one a month. They are bad for the human body. Still with me? Still following along? Read this last, final sentence and try and take it all in. If you never use an energy drink there will be no problems caused by an energy drink. Got it?

Matthew, really enjoy having you on the forum, but PackRat is 100% correct and he is a reliable authority on stuff like this. Do you know his story? He knows his ***t .

And energy drink addiction can be as bad as nicotine. Pick your poison. I just don't get the "energy drink" thing. Why do drivers need those? Whatever happened to the daily cup of coffee? Keep yourself in decent shape and you will stay alert, for most people.

Only energy drink I've ever had was a 5 hour energy when they first came out. I'd never had any issues with my heart except for when I took it. It seriously felt like my heart was going to beat out of my chest. I drink quite a bit of diet pop (Yeah, its pop NOT SODA!!!) but have been trying to switch to water and coffee instead. Only problem I have with water is needing to pee more often. Sure diet soft drinks dont have sugar, but their sugar substitutes arent good for you either.
